    I am getting too many turkey eggs for my incubator and not having a whole lot of luck hatching that way. My RP hen was stealing eggs (turkey and chicken) and sitting on them every night. I had 15 eggs too many for the incubator so I separated her and gave her the leftover eggs. She is trying so hard to keep them all covered. How many eggs is a reasonable amount for her to try to hatch? [​IMG]
